cyclin’ down some highway on a coast that’s known for gold
in a country that i wish wasn’t stolen not long ago
yes i do, oh yes i do
and i’m doin’ my best to subvert the oil economy
sometimes the system do and sometimes it don’t work for me
sometimes it do, sometimes it don’t
and today’s a day it don’t and it’s quite detrimental
to my existence and my future potential
and there’s one wish i wish so let it be told
that i wish there was a mother fuckin’ shoulder on this road

chorus:
i wish there was a shoulder on this road
i wish there was a shoulder on this road

1)
no, i don’t mean one to cry on
just one that i might not die on
i wish there were a shoulder on this road

2)
humans got two why is this the exception
my day glow vest is my only protection
i wish there were a shoulder on this road

i’ve spent my time in those death machines i know just how it feels
to be power trippin’ hungry when you’re behind the wheel
yes i do, oh yes i do
and those human powered vehicles that you are speedin’ past
must seem like ants you used to burn with a magnifyin’ glass
yes they do, i think they do
but now that you’re grow u and i’m sure you’ve much matured
your homicidal tendencies i hope have been deterred
but i can’t trust that you’ve forgotten all the habits you once knowed
and i wish there was a mother fuckin’ shoulder on this road

chorus

i’m inhaling your exhaust and riskin’ my own ass
just so i don’t support a messed up war bein’ fought for gas
yes i am, oh yes i am
but i’m not tryin’ to toot my own horn cuz well i ain’t got one
i’m just sayin’ resistance can be beautiful but right now it’s not fun
no it ain’t oh no it ain’t
and we wouldn’t need a wider lane if not for your wide load
so i wish there was i mother fuckin’ shoulder on this road
chorus

3)
lord i hope that i don’t die
but better on than off my bike
just tell my sweetheart when i go
i loved her more than she would know
tell her not to feel sufferin’ and pain
cuz my life won’t be in vein
if there were just a shoulder if only just one shoulder
a mother fuckin’ shoulder on this road
